Curio shop in Tokyo, Japan. It reminds me of something out of a Hayao Miyazaki film for some reason. I basked in the warm glow of the place for a few minutes admiring all the items in the window.

Swung by Boston to check out Harvard Business School and had to stop by and see  the beautiful architecture of the Boston Church of Christ.

LE MONT SAINT-MICHEL
       
     
LE MONT SAINT-MICHEL

Driving up to Le Mont Saint Michel is like approaching Minas Tirith, that fortress from Lord of the Rings. Walking through its cramped but charming streets made me think of the cobbled streets of Diagon Alley in Harry Potter. It's an incredibly beautiful sight and monument to human achievement. Le Mont Saint-Michel is on the  UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites

VENICE, ITALY

Two people stumble down the streets of Venice just before the waters come in and you have to hop over puddles to get home. Or swim.

LOS ANGELES DUSK

Dusk comes in LA after I enjoyed a cup of coffee with my friends on my last day there in February 2015. The blue to orange gradient in the sky is mesmerizing for the f ew minutes its there.

An insight into the Japanese people ironically came from a big box movie The Last Samurai. "They are an intriguing people. From the moment they wake they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue. I have never seem such discipline. I am surprised to learn that the word Samurai means, 'to serve', and that Katsumoto believes his rebellion to be in the service of the Emperor." I love discovering little shops like this owned and run by craftsmen who do what they do because of a deep passion to be the best at what they do.

I walked extra slow walking down 11th in Manhatten, admiring the spring blossoms along the streets, the red bricked houses and quaint and wonderful eateries cradled in nooks and crannies along the street.

SAINT-MALO
       
     
SAINT-MALO

A lovely town in Bretagne in France that is surrounded by a high wall. One side faces the sea. We scaled the wall to walk around the town and saw simple and beautiful sights like an old man tossing a stick for his dog on the beach, and a father and his child walking the shores.

Students enjoying the sunshine on the lawn in Harvard University. I never thought I'd end up working in the company of one of the students whose dorm was steps from where I stand.
